Current Research and Interests

My main interest is in the role of the parietal lobes in number processing, and in brain plasticity in the context of numerical cognition. My research aims to study which cognitive mechanisms and brain regions we may use to partly compensate for the inability to process numbers which can be innate, as in developmental dyscalculia, acquired following brain lesions o temporary as induced by transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). I am also interested in how the human brain processes quantity expressed in different ways, such as numbers (how many items?), time (how long?) and space (how far?). I use behavioural, neuroimaging and TMS methods in a variety of populations (healthy controls, neurological patients, adults with dyscalculia).
